Sometimes it just keeps coming!
Every year [recently], the hotel where we having a swimming membership has a gingerbread house in the lobby. Not just any gingerbread house–a GIANT gingerbread house.
I love it.
I had been to swim once or twice on my own and had seen it, but it had been really cold, so Stephen nor Oak had been by in the week before Christmas. So I put it on the list to stop by. [It was particularly epic this year with a bridge crossing two tables!]
We didn’t make it before Christmas, but since Christmas Day is very relative here, I didn’t think anything of it. We piled into the car after Oak was in pajamas on the 26th and headed over to see it.
WE MISSED IT.
I was sad. Stephen really couldn’t have cared less–he thinks it isn’t as cool as IT IS– and Oak didn’t even know what he was missing. But they made sad faces with me for camaraderie.
And then we went across the street to the mall, where the tree was still standing and still lit. 🤷🏼♀️
A few days following Christmas, our church held their annual Christmas party as well!
The Reinforcers ran sound, and Yaminoo danced; Stephen & I were called on stage to call raffle numbers…some things are just traditional 😁
